Laparoscopy

Adrenal Glands: Laparoscopic Adrenalectomy

Laparoscopic Adrenalectomy is the minimally invasive removal of an adrenal gland. Four to five keyhole incisions are made in the abdomen. The surgeon then places long instruments and a telescoping camera through these keyhole incisions to visualize the anatomy and perform the surgery.

The procedure typically takes around three to four hours. Once surgery is completed, you’ll be transferred to a hospital room to spend one to two nights recovering before you are discharged to home.

Kidney: Laparoscopic Nephrectomy

This is the surgical removal of the entire diseased or cancerous kidney by utilizing three to four small incisions placed in the abdomen.

The surgeon places long instruments and a telescoping camera through these keyhole incisions to visualize the anatomy and perform the surgery. It typically takes around three to four hours. Once surgery is completed, you’ll be transferred to a hospital room and will spend one to two nights recovering before you’re discharged to home.

Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive approach as opposed to the open nephrectomy. Your surgeon will help guide you to the right procedure for your individual case.

Prostate: Laparoscopic Prostatectomy

Laparoscopic prostatectomy is performed by making five to six keyhole incisions in the abdomen. Using laparoscopic equipment, the prostate is removed in a minimally invasive procedure. However, with the introduction of the da Vinci robot, many surgeons are using the robotic approach as it enhances their skills and vision while performing this surgery.
